Berlin / Munich (renewablepress) - Qualitas Energy, a global investment and management platform focused on renewable energy, energy transition, and sustainability investments, announces the partnership of its German subsidiary, Qualitas Energy Deutschland GmbH, with SURPLUS Equity Partners to build a 200 MW wind energy portfolio in Germany.

Together, under this cooperation agreement, wind farms are being planned to be developed nationwide. Specifically, wind turbines with a potential of 200 megawatts of climate-neutral electricity production are to be built in Wippershainer Höhe, Dalkendorf, Krackow, Oberreichenbach, Blankenhain, Rammelfangen, and Schwarzbach. The wind farms are currently in different planning stages and the turbines are planned to be commissioned between 2025 and 2027.

Apart from this transaction, Qualitas Energy is operating more than 40 wind farms in Germany at present, which are currently being successfully repowered to significantly increase the generation of environmentally friendly wind power.

Sebastian Lüdke, Founding Partner and CEO at SURPLUS Equity Partners, commented: “We are very pleased to team up with Qualitas Energy in various project developments across Germany. We are united by the common vision to drive the transition towards green energy. It is our joint approach to create value with closeness to residents and communities, transparent communication, and attractive incentives for the respective project regions.”

Our current fund, Q-Energy Fund V (QE V), will invest in renewable energy projects in Germany and internationally, strengthening our commitment to the transition to a decarbonized economy.
